Lake Le Homme Dieu Beach



Lake Le Homme Dieu Beach is located in Alexandria Township of Douglas County, Minnesota. From Alexandria, go north on State Trunk Highway 29 just past the city limits to the beach entrance. The beach is also accessible by a paved off road bicycle path that connects the city neighborhoods south of the lake


The beach is located on a right of way for Trunk Highway 29. Initially constructed as a wayside rest, the property quickly became popular as a swimming spot. In 1992 Douglas County entered into a 20 year lease agreement with the Minnesota Department of Transportation to improve and operate the facility as a public swimming beach. With assistance from the Alexandria Golden K Kiwanis Club, the property was rebuilt with new restrooms, parking lots, and beach area.

Lakes Area Recreation provides lifeguard services from noon to 7:00 p.m. during the summer swim season whenever daytime temperatures are above 68 degrees.

Please see the Park Amenities Grid page for a list of facilities available at the County Parks.
